Description Lee Leahu 2003-09-25 15:59:41 UTC
when running the command 
# insmod ds 
i get the following error messages 
/lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o: unresolved symbol proc_pccard_Rde775d83 
/lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o: unresolved symbol CardServices_Re4eef0a4 
This module is required for the orinoco_cs module to load. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the "Basic" live cd (this is the ~90mb live cd). 
2. at the prompt, run 'insmod ds' 
Actual Results:  
Using /lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o 
/lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o: unresolved symbol proc_pccard_Rde775d83 
/lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o: unresolved symbol CardServices_Re4eef0a4 

Expected Results:  
it should print 'Using /lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o' and then return back to a 
prompt with no additional output. 
Then, when running lsmod, you should see the ds module in the list. 

I am running the Lucent Technologies, WiFi Orinoco Gold card.   
The laptop it is running in is an IBM 600E ThinkPad. 
This is the only card i have to access my network, and prevents me from installing 
gentoo linux on my laptop.

also, after more debugging,

when i run the command 'modprobe ds'
i get the output:

ds: no socket drivers loaded!
/lib/modules/2.4.21-gss/pcmcia/ds.o: init_module: Operation not permitted

Comment 2 Lee Leahu 2003-09-25 16:27:13 UTC
i found a temporary work-around.

to resolve the 'no socket drivers loaded' message,  i had to run

# modprobe i82365

then i was successfully able to run

# modprobe ds
# modprobe orinoco_cs


I think that someone should make i82365 module a required for modprobe to
load before the ds module tries to load.

Comment 3 Lee Leahu 2003-09-25 16:28:24 UTC
could someone tell me if my suggestion listed above is a good suggestion?
 and if so,  when it might be implemented?
